Life Continues To Screw With Me

Okay, so I had a few problems with my Blog... A table in the Movable Type database that powers all this stuff was corrupted, and so I was delayed in posting a bit. And somehow SAFEMODE has been enabled on the PHP instance on this server so I my gallery isn't running correctly today. Which is too bad... cause i have a bunch of pictures to post.

Busy Summer

We were having this conversation at work the other day... about how we simply seem to have too few summer weekends. As soon as you reach mid-June it certainly feels like you've got your entire summer planned.

I'm not even going to go into the fact that there simply aren't enough "long weekends" in the summer. :)

Tony Graham Toyota

Edit: Okay, so I didn't write the letter, and am going to give Tony another shot.

Grrrr...

Alright, so I'm fed up to _here_ with these guys.

First, I take my car in for routine maintenance to Tony Graham Toyota. While dropping it off I tell the service guy that I've experienced some sluggishness with my Corolla, notably in 1st gear and typically when it's cold. They say, "alright, we'll road test it and see".

Hmm....

This has been a pretty busy week for me. First I had to have car repairs done on my car early Monday morning, then drove back to Ottawa. I then worked a little later than normal to make up for the fact that I was a little over an hour late. Tuesday saw me ump a softball game, then play ultimate. Wednesday I played softball, and then last night I did some work upon getting home. I've gone to bed a lot earlier than normal this week (11pm rather than 1am) but still haven't been able to get up any earlier. Drat.
Ultimate tonight looks promising though, my cousin Connor's birthday party tomorrow afternoon and then, maybe a Lynx game on Sunday. We'll see...

Bill And Joy's Wedding!

Two of my closest friends said their vows yesterday and began a life of total commitment to one another. I wish them all the happiness in the world and want them to know if there is anything I can ever do to help, they just have to let me know. The wedding was spectacular and the entire wedding party did an excellent job. Bill and Joy were off to Mexico for their honeymoon, and the rest of us are extremely jealous.

"Stars fight SARS"

BNL, The Hip, Avril Lavigne and more...

Okay, so it's not exactly the concert envisioned before, but I'll be fighting to get tickets tomorrow. Besides, I don't care about the Rolling Stones, or whether it's free... at $19.50 or $29.50 it's a huge deal!

Fishing Quotas

{Political Rant}
Okay, fishing quotas. First off, why is it that there are people from Japan fishing the waters off of Newfoundland? I mean, are there not enough waters to fish around Japan? It's a freakin' island!

Skipping Commercials...

Okay, so I was thinking today (thought sparked by slashdot post) about how PVRs and VCRs skip commercials.
